Membership & Donations

The Humanist Community in Silicon Valley relies exclusively on contributions from generous supporters like you to maintain Humanist House and to provide free programming and events.

You may join us as a member, make a donation, or both. Our bylaws require a one-time application and annual fee for membership. We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, and a Chartered Chapter of the American Humanist Association. Membership fees and donations are tax deductible.
